NTSB investigators may have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

Approaching his destination, the pilot lowered the landing gear of the Cessna T210M, and was then advised by the tower that the gear did not appear to be locked down. After a flyby confirming the right main landing gear only partially extended, the pilot attempted corrective action without success. He then returned to the airport and executed a power-off, full flaps landing to runway 28L. During the landing roll, the right gear collapsed and the right horizontal stabilizer was damaged. Post-crash examination revealed that the hydraulic hose between the system and the nose gear door actuator had deteriorated allowing a total hydraulic fluid loss and rendering the gear system inoperable.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

The deterioration and subsequent leakage of a hydraulic line which resulted in the total loss of hydraulic fluid and the inability of the pilot to extend the landing gear into the locked position.
